In today's market, no other form of lighting technology can come close to the range of colors of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). LEDs are available in an impressive range of colors, colors such as blue, red, purple, green, and a wide spectrum of yellows and whites to name a few. The color of an LED is determined by its color temperature or correlated color temperature, which a description of the warmth of a light source, and it is one of the most important things that you need to consider while purchasing an LED.
LEDs based on the white spectrum
If you are purchasing a bulb for normal household lighting, chances are that you are going to want a yellow or white LED. Warm white LEDs, in the range of 2,700-3,000K, are most suitable for regular decorative and residential lighting purposes. Warm white LEDs will produce yellow hues similar to the hues produced by incandescent light bulbs.
Cool white or neutral white LEDs, in the range of 4,000-5,000K, are most appropriate for applications in warehouse and office spaces. LEDs in this range emit neutral white light with a slightly blue tint and are bright enough for work spaces without being overly jarring.
Most commercial LED high bay lights used in warehouses are bright white LEDs such as the LED T8.
Other color LEDs
LEDs such as RGBs (LEDs that emit red, green, and blue light) are useful for use in traffic lights and for decorative purposes. A lot of concerts and events that require a multitude of lights are likely to use a combination of different color LEDs. LEDs developed in the ultraviolet range of the electromagnetic spectrum, a range invisible to the human eye, are used for UV curing and water purification.
It is important to carry out sufficient research and pick your LED based on its color temperature and lumens to select the most perfect light for your needs.
